Setup Menu

Another new sight on a Sony digital camera is the dedicated Setup mode, taking some of the less often changed settings away from the record menu and putting them away in a dedicated menu makes a lot more sense and allows for greater flexibility and expansion later. A welcome sight. The menu itself is split into three categories:

On (camera magnifies center of frame in manual focus mode)
• Off
